This is a belt driven platter. the belt is old and fell off. http://www.archive.org/details/Turntable_Belt_Installation

this link shows how to replace a belt, once you see where the belt goes thread a piece of string through the mechanism where the belt should go and measure it and contact them with the length. or measure total length of the old belt if still in one piece. figure about $14 for most belts.

My Optimus LAB 1100 is playing 45s ok but the 33s sound like the chipmunks


the turntable speed is incorrect
adjust with the speed control setting
many quality turn tables have bar codes around the outside edge and when viewed under a light those bars appear to be stationary when the correct table speed is set
It is a strobe affect in time with the frequency of the light

We have teh truntable properly connected to the computer but the computer isn't recognizing the turntable. The turntable turns, but we get no sound through the computer.

Optimus lab 1100 Turntable won't turn!


The mechanics in your arm postion is throwing the switch. A mechanical postion switch has sliped out of postion, a arm from the toner arm post has moved to an encorrect postion, or if your turntable has a multi-album play abilty your 'next to play record' post postion sensor switch is out of postion. Last or first is your belt could fool ya. Your belt may have a weak spot on it in turn no friction underload.
